Thanks for posting that link. Now everyone can see what the issue 
is and make their own decisions.

Yes, I do personally have issues with SIL, but discussion of such 
opinions are totally off-topic, so I will not state more than that. I 
also dislike debating such issues even on lists and newsgroups 
formed for such discussions because it is pointless. We are 
dealing with religion here. No matter how eloquently I state my 
opinions I can never change anyone else's view. Such discussions 
invariably degenerate into flame wars. Therefore this is the end of 
the discussion for me, and I suggest we all drop it.

Except if someone comes up with a true, complete Unicode-
compliant IPA font that is equal to or better than Gentium and 
Charis, I'd like to hear of it -- especially if it comes in OpenType 
with various weights and true small caps, ligatures, etc., so it can 
be used for typesetting.
